acrylic allergy
I am soon to have an operation for cataract, and am slightly worried as I have an allergy to methyl methacrylate, the constituent of the prosthetic lens.
Do I need to be worried?

What did your surgeon say?

He seemed surprised at the question as he had never been asked previously. He is going to do a search of the literature.

Re: acrylic allergy
I would also check with your allergist as he will know more about your allergy. I'm very sensitive to thimerisol when it was in contact solutions. But it's never bothered me in flu shots.This may be a non issue for you.
